Poetry stuff


Hi. My name is Afric McGlinchey and I write, read and review poetry. I started writing this blog with the intention of sharing some poems I come across, which appeal to me because of their content, imagery, symbolism, unusual language/approach/ emotive or cerebral qualities. Particularly poems that strike me because of their integrity and/or intimacy. But now I feel the urge to write about poetry too ā€“ what poetry I’m reading, or what I’m doing in my poetry life. Or anything that I think might be helpful to other poets and poetry lovers out there. So, expect more poetry stuff here! Thanks for reading. And any feedback would be great!

    • Thanks Colm ā€“ promise to keep any comments to a minimum! And I’ll include more contemporary poems too. Keep visiting, and let me know which ones grab you. Also, if you have any suggestions, I’ll look them up.

  2. Hi.
    Just got here to read Black Ice and Rain. I must confess I didn’t know Michael Donaghy until now; what a masterful controlled devastating piece of writing. I’m about to explore your blog further – I’ve got a good feeling about this!
    I love your generosity in sharing your love of good poetry. I’ll be back once I’ve had a bit of a read
